The Calgary diocese's support of the ordination of women, which was described by several speakers as a "divisive will be forwarded to the church's national decision making body, the Anglican general as a reflection of one Tea's opinion on the matter. Since Anglican bishops have not yet acted on their 1972 decision and actually ordained women. Bishop Morse Goodman of the Calgary diocese said additional debate of the issue could still provide valuable input for considera- tion of Hie church hierarchy Evidence that chauvinism may indeed a clerical collar came with the first speaker who rose in support of the 1972 motion, but quipped that, in reply to those who ask how one defrocks a "lady the answer is "slowly" And added the minister, later identified as Rev HiarU-s Alexander (if Calgary.

The recommendation came following an inquest into the Aug. 18 death of Anthony James Tarr, whom the jury found to have died from injuries suffered in November, 1970, at the age of nine weeks. Testimony was that the infant was admitted to hospital in Kipling, Sask four years ago suffering from 10 broken ribs, a haemathoma on both halves of the brain and a number of other injuries The child was kept at Wascana Hospital in Regina from January, 1971, until his death. Detective William Graham of Regina City Police told the in- quest that medical personnel and social workers involved in the case were sceptical of the parents explanation that the child was injured falling off a table but did not advise police of their suspicions He said similar suspicions nre often not reported to police in other case? and an invpstigation soon after the incident ronld have resulted in criminal charges Crown Procecutor Arnold Pirnpoff rec-fit Alberta leg'slntion makes it mandatory for professional to report child abuse and jury's ITMV help to c legislation r-Hre in- situation -Hie Herald Dear Ann Landers: A friend of mine wrote an essay.

Oakland Reader INFATUATION leaps into bloom LOVE usually takes root slowly and grows with time. INFATUATION is accom- panied by a sense of uncer- tainty You are stimulated and thrilled but not really hap- py You are miserable when he is absent. You can't wait until you see him again. LOVE begins with a feeling of security. You are warm with a sense of his nearness, even when he is away. Miles do not separate you. You want him near, but near or far, you know he's yours and you can wait INFATUATION says, "We must get married right away I can't risk losing him." LOVE says. "Don't rush into anything." You are sure of one another. You can plan your future with confidence. INFATUATION has an ele- ment of sexual excitement. !f you are honest, you will dis- cover that it is difficult to en- joy one another unless you know it wiil end in intimacy. LOVE means trust You may fall into INFATUATION, but you never fall in love. In- fatuation might lead you to do things for which you might be sorry, but LOVE never will. LOVE leads you up. It makes you look up. It makes you think up. It makes you a better person than you were before I Know The Difference Dear Reader: Beautiful Thanks for sharing. Dear Ann Landers: My job is endangered because I don't know how to deal with my wife's irresponsible spending. She refuses to admit she can't handle a checking account, although every month she is overdrawn We fight about this con- stantly I can't live with debt. I think she needs professional help because she's a com- pulsive spender. She won't go. Can you help? Trusting In You" Dear Trusting: Make an ap- pointment with the person in your bank who counsels clients. He will tell you both what needs to be done and how. If an "authority" says she must live on an allowance and all charge accounts must be closed, she might listen If she refuses to go, go alone and follow the banker's instruc- tions no matter what.

Merry Christmas slogans It's tough being a consumer in these pre Christmas days At no other time of year are the efforts of so many bent upon the sole purpose of relieving the masses of so much cash For the average consumer, it's all quite overwhelming My old friend Mazie finds it downright infuriating. "Every year I think competition for consumer's attention can't possibly increase, and every Christmas I'm proven wrong Advertising never fails to come up with bigger, more compell- ing campaigns, catchier complained my friend this week. She was mixing up a batch of Christmas cake, worrying that the ingredients wouldn't have time to age properly before Dec. 25. "Those snippets of advertising refrains waft through the air, apparently right at home with Christmas carols and virgin white muttered Mazie, whomping up the batter with a vengeance. "At first I thought they were innocuous enough, until I found myself humming a few of them around the kitchen." I said, "I suppose you can look upon the fierce sloganeering as a kind of flattery everyone with something to sell is interested in you, craves your attention. snorted Mazie "Is the wealthy octogenarian flattered when a penniless debutante sidles up to him9 Not if he has all his marbles and wants to keep all his scheckles. he's not. "I guess most businesses just don't credit consumers with very high she added. "Look at the ploys they're using to lure the unwary into the yawning, glittering maws of their establishment. "For said my friend, waving a batter laden spoon. "They're trying to inveigle us into their premises with a cozy familial approach: "Let us share a special moment with you." Then there are those dealing in the realm of the magical they've got a wondrous "wish book" in which we can mortgage all of 1975. if we don't practice restraint And yet a third store gushes it's our "Merry Christmas implying that the makings of Christmas cheer and generous giving are to be had nowhere else It's all pretty transparent, isn't if" I agreed. What this country really needs is a forthright store that doesn't insult our intelligence. Let's have commercials saying know Christmas has gotten to be a crass, over commer- cialized drag.

We don't promise you miracles, we don't want to become members of your family and. to be quite frank, got about the same array of merchandise (a lot of it poor quality as our competitors. But we do have courteous, plentiful sales staff and. should you come in out of the cold, we'll be glad to try and help you "There's only one problem with that kind of approach "Yeah, I know, I agreed Mazie in disgust.
